Request a Grant Writer

Grants of up to $10,000 per worker to Manitoba businesses to support job training, including training related to Coronavirus (COVID-19). Funding is intended to foster workforce development for new or existing workers. Participating employers must have a job available for the trainee upon successful completion of the training. For existing employees, the purpose of training should be to upgrade skills so they may move up to a better job or meet employer needs in the workplace.

Eligible training costs include:

  • tuition fees or fees charged by a training provider
  • mandatory student fees
  • textbooks, software and other required materials
  • examination fees
  • travel costs for individuals residing in northern and remote communities to attend training events in Manitoba delivered outside their communities or unavailable online

Training can be delivered at the workplace, online or in a classroom or training facility and must be provided by an approved third-party trainer. This could include:

  • post-secondary institutions
  • private vocational institutions
  • sector councils or industry associations
  • union halls

Employers may propose other organizations for consideration to deliver the training. Examples include equipment manufacturers, software developers and private trainers (consultants) if they have:

  • applicable curriculum available or curriculum development expertise
  • specialized equipment and materials required for training
  • qualified trainers (credentials and/or experience)

Estimated Size of Grant:

Eligible employers may apply for up to $10,000 for each individual worker to assist with training costs.

With the maximum government contribution of $10,000, this means that up to $15,000 is available, per person, for eligible training costs. Small businesses (50 employees or less), or employers that train unemployed individuals may be eligible for additional funding support.

The Canada-Manitoba Job Grant application intake is now open for training that ends by March 1, 2021.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

Manitoba employers are eligible to apply.
